    I thought you guys were talking about real cars and I got all excited. Then I saw it was about NFSwhatever.

    And I was no longer excited.


    t tfs: Hey, I tried. I didn't have too, but I did.

    Also, I found this;

    Actually I was kind of thinking about this today as I was doing laundry.

    I spend maybe an hour a day doing the family laundry, although this isn't every day, which ends up being ~5 hours a week to do laundry for three people, and this is with the aid of a washing machine.

    Back before there were laundry machines and we did this shit by hand, people apparently spent ~5 hours a week doing laundry. It took more time per shirt, but there were far less shirts to wash.

    The first thing we did when we got time-saving devices like the washer/dryer was buy more crap to fill up that time.

    Which makes me wonder why I really need to have more than four or five shirts total in the first place. It's enough that they'd each be clean every time I wore them, and with today's improvements in manufacturing I'm pretty sure I could find clothing that would be durable enough to last me for years.

    What? How does buying more shirts mean more laundry? I assmue that you only wash dirty shirts; thus, your greater burden stems not from owning so many shirts, but from changing shirts, apparently, about ten times more often than was done back in the days without washing machines. This tends to lead to the conclusion that you are mildly obsessive-compulsive and, apparently, like to blame societal consumption for your problem.

    On a related note, what do you call bread made by bison?
    a buffaloaf


    I'm pretty sure having more clothes to pick from leads to people wearing more clothes, and changing clothes more often, regardless if they're actually dirty or not.

    The fact that I really only need 5 shirts to keep myself in clean clothes all the time, yet I own some thirty or forty shirts in my closet does indeed speak of waste and societal consumption. Owning only five shirts, despite them being clean whenever worn, is something that most of western society would say is undesireable because of how unstylish it would be.

    Those are two separate issues there, and I'm not particularly happy with either of them.

    Are they justifiably expensive or are they just a scam? My cousin is going to buy a $1000 purse that his girlfriend wants, you see. This is what has led me to these thoughts.

    Your cousin is a fucking retard.

    Sorry.

    I bought my wallet for $20 at a bong shop. It's a poorly made piece of crap, but it has Bruce Lee looking boss on the front and dragons etc on other places. And it hasn't fallen apart after 3 or 4 years which is more than could be said for some wallets.

    next time you see him with his girlfriend be mean about how overpriced it is

    like the usual 'why the fuck would you spend that much on a purse'
    maybe throw in a 'i thought you were trying to save up for a (car)' to get her feeling a bit guilty
    then go on about how the purse looks like crap anyway and they shouldve got a fake one or something
    then get look real close at the stitching and other details of it and tell them that it is fake

    Oh, she is so retarded. Her fiance was a really cool guy and I actually liked him. I wish we could kick her out of the family and keep him instead.

    He finished college and started looking for jobs out of state and she refused to move out of state, so he was like "ok, how 'bout Sioux Falls, it's only an hour away" and she still said no, and he was like "I can't get a job in this shit town, so fuck you."

    At one point, she was threatening to get pregnant on purpose because it would lower her rent.

    my last wallet cost $15 and was something like this design
    D035HH-WBSL-Blk_t.jpg

    then that fell apart and i went and got a $40 slim leather wallet
    and its been holding up well for a few years now
    its cool cos its really thin, like i can fill it up with stuff and it will be as thick as some other wallets are when they are completely empty
    except it doesnt have anywhere for change, so i gotta use the coin pocket on jeans
    and its almost exactly the right height for australian notes, which are apparently shorter than in other countries because ill go overseas and have money sticking out a few cm from the wallet

    You know how much money I got? Oprah does my laundry. Michael Jordan cuts my grass. Do you know how frivolous I am? I drive a hummer to the end of my driveway just to get the mail and that's all I use it for. I got six stock brokers, fourteen doctors, two lawyers, seventeen accountants and eight other lawyers just to watch the first two lawyers. And I got custom made condoms made out of other people's dicks. When I'm too tired to get my socks blown I hire someone else to fuck for me. You know how rich I am? You know how much credit I got? I threw away all my platinum cards and I got a uranium card. Bitch, I drive a Rolls-Royce pickup truck. I got a penthouse with a helicopter pad on the roof and snipers in the other penthouse to make sure no one steals my helicopter. Donald Trump delivers my newspapers in the morning and I don't even tip him.

    You know, I get that the purse is just not worth it in terms of functionality, but what you're paying for is status and/or style. You know those stupid homo 14-year-olds with neon lights and shit on their computers? Yeah, that doesn't make the GPU render any faster, but they still dandy it up. People decorate shit all the time with no functional justification for it. Women, in this case, decorate themselves with bazillions of pairs of funtionally-identical shoes and purses.

    Also, buying knockoffs is just a shitty thing to do. I think it's actually an illegal business because the design is copyrighted.

    I can understand decorating your shit, that's great. But they're not paying for how nice it looks, because you could get a generic (or in the purse business - identical knockoff) for the exact same price. They're just spending as much as 1000% of the actual cost of construction or a substitue good to have a genuine version of an item that is for all intents indistinguishable from the substitute in actual use.

    Also, I could see the logo being copyrighted, but can you actually copyright a purse design? Aren't they kinda... generic?

    EDIT- somehow Opera hates my media keys, and submits when I hit "play". Oops.

    Oh I hate most of my cousins too.

    They're all stupid, and I doubt any of them will ever move further than an hour from home, and I don't think any of them will go to college.

    The only one who might still is Nikki, mainly because I think she'll want a better job than waitressing.

    i would say no. you compliment the attractiveness you have with other attractive things. basically, the more attractive you are, the more you are expected to keep up that appearance in the way you dress and accessorize.

    I want to draw up a family tree so I can explain exactly who is and isn't retarded.

    Like my mom? She's not dumb. My older brother? Book smart, but sometimes dumb. Little brother? Pretty smart but kinda dopey.

    Aunt? Totally ditzy, not book smart at all, dating her 3rd cousin.

    Uncle? Sold his farm, does not have a new job, has a gravel pit and 4 kids.

    All 4 of his kids are annoying and dumb.

    When I said a piece, I mean $50 for the top and $50 for the bottom. It's usually more around $55 and $40, respectively.
